Orthodontist Highlights Top 3 Benefits of Invisalign® Braces, Ashtabula, Ohio

Invisalign® is the best-known solution for straightening teeth, and starting the process is as easy as a consultation and exam with your orthodontist. Although this form of dentistry is popular, many people have questions about what sets it apart from traditional braces. The Healthy Smile Center of Ashtabula, OH, offers the following reasons to straighten your teeth with Invisalign along with some tips to help you make the most of your treatment. 

Requires a Shorter Time Commitment

Every patient has unique needs that determine how many trays they require and how long they must wear them each day. However, even a relatively long Invisalign treatment is shorter than the average length of time spent wearing metal braces. In many cases, patients can complete their treatment in a few months, wearing their aligners up to 22 hours a day. Following your orthodontist's directions closely ensures the treatment will work properly and take less time. 

Easy to Clean

Compared to traditional braces, which are cemented in place, you can remove the aligners throughout the day to enjoy meals and snacks, then clean them to keep both the trays and your teeth free from plaque buildup. Orthodontists recommend storing your aligners in a carrying case and keeping a small cleaning kit on hand. This kit should include a brush and toothpaste for your teeth and a separate brush just for the tray. Clean the aligners gently using a soft antibacterial soap instead of toothpaste.

Preserves Your Smile

Aesthetics are one of the biggest reasons for Invisalign's popularity. Metal braces are visible, which can make them awkward for older patients, and the brackets a magnet for stubborn food particles. Invisalign trays, on the other hand, are hardly noticeable, making them ideal for patients of all ages. Being able to remove them makes it easier to avoid leaving behind food particles that can contribute to oral health problems. When your teeth look and feel great, you can’t help but smile.

If you’re ready to straighten your teeth and have the smile of your dreams, then ask an orthodontist whether Invisalign is right for you. The specialists at The Healthy Smile Center offer this popular treatment to help patients realign their teeth, correct bite problems, and restore their confidence.
